Castanea sativa (Chestnut). A broadly columnar, spreading and deciduous tree with an upright and bushy habit. This is a taller variety very well-suited to the large landscape setting, and also grown for its nuts.


They are fully hardy and will require sun or semi-shade; they will grow particularly well in hot, dry areas. They will need fertile well drained soil, and will grow poorly on shallow chalky soil.

Interest and use

Banks and hedging, nuts, raw material. Suitable for coastal conditions.
